Caspase family of proteases are the central mediators of apoptosis in mammalian cells. The Caspase-12 Fluorometric Assay Kit provides a simple and convenient means for assaying the activity of caspases that recognize the sequence ATAD. The assay is based on detection of cleavage of substrate ATAD-AFC (AFC: 7-amino-4-trifluoromethyl coumarin). ATAD-AFC emits blue light (max = 400 nm); upon cleavage of the substrate by caspase-12 or related caspases, free AFC emits a yellow-green fluorescence (max = 505 nm), which can be quantified using a fluorometer or a fluorecence microtiter plate reader.

‧ Detection method- Fluorecence microtiter plate reader (400-nm excitation filter and 505-nm emission filter) and fluorescence microscopy
‧ Sample type- Cell and tissue lysates
‧ Species reactivity- Mammalian
‧ Applications- Detect early/middle stages of apoptosis; differentiate apoptosis from necrosis.

Features and Benefits
‧ Simple one-step procedure; takes only 1-2 hours
‧ Fast and convenient
‧ Comparison of the fluorescence of AFC from an apoptotic sample with an uninduced control allows determination of the fold increase in caspase-12 activity.

Example of GeneTex Fluorometric Caspase Activity Assay Kit: Analysis of Caspase-3 Activity in Jurkat cells. Apoptosis was induced in Jurkat cells by camptothecin (2 μM) for 6 hours. Caspase activity was analyzed using Caspase-9 Colorimetric Assay Kit. Results were analyzed by spectrophotometer.
